Krav Maga Forge is a Krav Maga Academy school, the best Krav Maga system in the world. Krav Maga Academy was founded by Master Shachar Izraeli and is headquartered in Rehovot Isreal with schools in Europe, South America, and the United States. All of Krav Maga Forge's instructors are personally trained and certified by Shachar Isreali.

In each class, our students train practical, proven self defense techniques, combatives, and weapons defenses, in a safe, collaborative, but challenging environment.



Toky Reed, our head instructor and owner of Krav Maga Forge, began her Krav Maga training in 2007 and quickly fell in love with simple, effective techniques, tactics, and warrior mindset. Her passion and desire to share what she learned that drove her to become a certified instructor in 2010. As she continued her training and accumulated progressively higher instructor certifications, she sought more and more knowledge. Over the next few years Toky trained with master instructors from multiple Krav Maga organizations in the United States, Europe, and Israel.

It was during an instructor certification in Israel in 2012, that Toky first met Shachar Izraeli, the head Krav Maga instructor at the Wingate Institute and founder of Krav Maga Academy. Shachar and his authentic Israeli Krav Maga left a deep and lasting impression on Toky and she became determined to bring Authentic Israeli Krav Maga to her students in the United States. In 2014, Toky traveled overseas to take Shachar's grueling 20 day instructor course and became the first certified Krav Maga Academy instructor in the United States. Toky continues to train under Shachar Izraeli, constantly striving to improve her knowledge and skills.

Bill Reed started training Karate, as a kid, under all Japan champion Master Kotaka. He loved the discipline and feeling of training traditional martials arts, the hours of calm single minded focus of Kata, and the pure adrenline rush of sparing. When his family moved from Hawaii, he was unable to continue his training. As an adult, Bill reconnected with martial arts when he began training Choi Kwang Do in 1994. He enjoyed the beauty of the choreographed movements and the feeling of power from punching and kicking.

In 2007, while preparing for his 3rd Degree Black Belt test, Toky made him try a Krav Maga class. Bill was blown away. He immediately began training Krav Maga 5-10 times per week and never went back to Choi Kwang Do.

The more Bill trained Krav Maga, the more he fell in love with it. Bill found that Krav Maga solves a lot of problems that he found missing from his previous martial arts experience, such as training to fight: against chokes; against bear hugs; on the ground; against multiple attackers; against weapons found on the street like sticks, knives, and guns. Bill immersed himself in Krav Maga, taking all the classes, seminars, and extra training he could get, reading everything he could get his hands on and watching lots of videos, turning into a serious Krav MaGeek.

Bill loves sharing what he learns, especially when he sees a student make a breakthrough or gain new insight and a deeper understanding of a technique or tactic. This passion for learning and sharing compelled Bill to travel overseas to take the Krav Maga Academy international instructor course and become a certified KMA instructor. Bill continues to train under Toky Reed and Shachar Izraeli, working to improve his Krav Maga knowledge and skill so he can share his love of Krav Maga.
